Newsflash: The Mantra is Different
The time has come. The Mantra changes for 2019. In fact, Volk will now roll out two of them.

2019 Volkl 90Eight Description:
This ski may be called the 90eight, but it is 100% ready to tackle the mountain. Built with Volkl's 3D.Glass and 3D.Ridge technology to keep weight down and torsional stiffness high, this ski rails groomers and blasts through tracked out snow with equal aplomb. The additional benefit of the construction is that the 90eight is lean, meaning this ski is awesome as a touring setup when mounted with a Kingpin or similar hard charging touring binding. A Powder7 favorite for the past several seasons the Volkl 90eight can accompany you on your mountain adventures whether you ride the resort, earn your turns outside the ropes, or simply want a ski that has no limitations.
